The Tomb Raider Temple

Ta Prohm, better known to many as the Tomb Raider Temple, is one of my favourite of the temples of Angkor Wat. I’ve been there twice now, the first time just over nine years ago. This time it was obvious that the temple is falling apart. The larger trees are being held up with steel poles, as it they fall, they take the temple with them. One of the charms of Ta Prohm is that the roots of the trees have taken over, weaving their way over, under, and through the temple. But these roots will also be the temple’s downfall.

Here are some of my photos.
